"A very special wine in honour of sixth-generation winemaker Christopher Killeen. He was called “The Prince of Vintage Fortified” in the wine industry for his skill and passion in making his own unique Australian style of Vintage Fortified. Each year, we take the best fruit from the Portuguese varieties he planted in the 1990s, co-ferment for optimum results and use the best French oak to create a savoury, elegant and age-worthy dry table wine. It's only released in the best years." - Wendy Killeen
SIZE: 750ML ALC/VOL: 12.9% VEGAN FRIENDLY: YES
Grape - Estate Grown blend of 20% Tinta Roriz, 46% Touriga Nacional, 22% Tinto Cao, 6% Tinta Barocca,6% Souzao.
Look - Light ruby red and clear
Aroma - Rose, red cherry tart, cranberry and perfumed potpourri.
Taste - This is a bright and lively wine that zings on the palate. It has flavours of fresh red berries and cherries, milk chocolate, Turkish Delight and long sinuous tannins. The addition of a small amount of the Souzao grape lifts the acid profile on the finish to make a remarkably refreshing wine
Occasion - As a premium blend it should be paired with some quality food. This a lighter style of wine, although very complex, and should match most of the well cooked meat dishes where you want an interesting wine that won’t dominate the flavours. It should make a superb accompaniment to a full flavoured vegetarian dish.
Cellaring - The lower alcohol level of this wine means that it will age gracefully for up to 8 years. It is best to decant if it is be consumed young.
Winemaking - The later-ripening Portuguese varieties were co-fermented to add complexity and greater integration to the nose and palate. The wine was fermented in our open-top vats with hand-plunging and foot treading, and then transferred to new and one-and two-year old French puncheons for 11 months maturation. The larger barrel size and a long slow toast regime delivers a subtle spiciness that marries beautifully with the richness of the fruit. Tinto Cao was added to give more structure and body. This certainly one of the more powerful Prince blends.
